A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins

GAMEDAY: vs. Texas 12/6

vs.  

Who: Texas Stars

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza

When: 7:05 p.m.

Last Game: Last Saturday at home against Bridgeport, the Penguins won 5-2. Matt Abt and Oula Palve scored their first AHL goals of their careers. Chase Berger had his first fight and also had a goal and an assist. For Texas, the Stars ended the Milwaukee Admirals 13 game winning streak this past Tuesday at home where they scored four goals on all four shots attempted in the second period. Jake Oettinger stopped 39 of 40 shots.

Record: For WBS: 13-6-2-1 (29 pts., 2nd place Atlantic Division) // For TEX: 7-13-1-2 (17 pts, 8th place Central Division)

Referees: Dan Kelly / Tim Mayer

Linesmen: Bob Goodman / J.P. Waleski

Why You Should Care: It’s the first time ever that these two teams have met in head-to-head competition. Texas comes in on a five game point streak riding a high of ending division rival Milwaukee’s 13 game winning streak in impressive fashion. Will that carry over to the Eastern Time Zone here in Wilkes-Barre who have ate 8-1-1 in their last ten games?

Listen: Nick Hart on the call on WILK.

Watch: AHLTV is back for another season and better than ever.
